Google's Cloud Status Dashboard showed disruptions in its App Engine, Cloud Networking and Stackdriver.
"We are aware of issues affecting some of our GCP services and the team is actively investigating," Google said in a statement.
The Drudge Report and Breitbart were back up and running within about a half hour. Around that same time, Google said issues with Stackdriver, which provides performance and diagnostics data to public cloud users, were resolved for "some users," with a full resolution forthcoming. The company said issues with Google Cloud Platform services should have been resolved for all users by about 3:45 p.m. EST.
